Night of Scientists at FIT: Traveling in virtual reality, scalpel-free operations and robotic workplace of the future
The Night of Scientists will open doors to laboratories and research centers throughout the Czech Republic again this year: on Friday 27th September from 6 pm to midnight.
At FIT, visitors will have an opportunity to travel without a carbon footprint - in the world of virtual reality they can return to their holiday destination with a new software tool developed at FIT.
Jiří Jaroš will take the visitors to the near future, in which doctors will be able to remove a tumor without a single cut with a scalpel and will be able to treat epileptic seizures or Parkinson's disease thanks to supercomputers. Come to listen to his lecture (in Czech) "Neurosurgery and neurostimulation using computer-controlled ultrasound".
In a lecture by Libor Polčák "Security not only of the Internet of Things", visitors will learn what it looks like when data or the ability to control Internet-connected devices fall into unauthorized hands.
In the robotics lab, visitors can program their lego robots and teach them what to do in different situations, or learn about the robotic workplace of the future.
There will be also logical tasks and puzzles prepared for the visitors to show how important mathematical logic is not only for computer science and how easy it is to solve them thanks to the computers.
